[movies]Hubble Spies Huge Clusters of Stars Formed by Ancient Encounter - *Credits for Hubble image:* NASA [ http://www.nasa.gov/ ], ESA [ http://spacetelescope.org/ ], R. de Grijs (Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge, UK) *Credits for ground-based picture:* N.A. Sharp (Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy [ http://www.aura-astronomy.org/ ], National Optical Astronomy Observatories, National Science Foundation)
*Description*: This stunningly beautiful image [right] taken with the NASA Hubble Space Telescope shows the heart of the prototypical starburst galaxy M82. The ongoing violent star formation due to an ancient encounter with its large galactic neighbor, M81, gives this galaxy its disturbed appearance. The smaller picture at upper left shows the entire galaxy. The image was taken in December 1994 by the Kitt Peak National Observatory's 0.9-meter telescope...

*Description*:> This is a zoom into the "blue blobs" found along a wispy bridge of gas strung among three colliding galaxies, M81, M82, and NGC 3077 residing about 12 million light-years from Earth in the direction of the constellation Ursa Major. Astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope found these objects to be brilliant blue star clusters born in the swirls and eddies of a galactic smashup 200 million years ago...

*Description*:> This is a zoom into the dwarf irregular galaxy called Holmberg IX. It resides just off the outer edge of M81, a large spiral galaxy in the constellation Ursa Major. Video starts with a backyard view of Ursa Major. Camera zooms into the M81 and M82 galaxy pair. Scene ends with close-up view of Holmberg IX, where Hubble Space Telescope resolves over 20,000 stars.
